Ground turkey is now being recalled due to a nationwide salmonella outbreak.  36 million pounds are being pulled out of grocery store coolers after at least 76 people have become sick and one person has died.  Cargill is recalling both frozen and fresh ground turkey products produced between February 20th and August 2nd

Ground turkey productions has also been suspended at the company’s plant in Springdale, Arkansas — the plant in which they believe the contaminated meat was processed.  Cargill, a Minnesota-based company, initiated the recall and will conduct its own internal investigation to get to the bottom of the outbreak.

All products falling under the recall have a code “Est. P-963″ on the label.  Unfortunately, the strain of salmonella involved in this recall is resistant to many antibotics, making it more difficult to treat.  If you think you have any symptoms of salmonella, you should go see your doctor immediately.

Ohio and Michigan had the highest number of reported illness.  However, New York was just one of 20 states the products were sold to as well.  Each of those states have reported between one and three illnesses.
